A special Pokémon Go time-themed Ultra Unlock bonus event is taking place, since players completed goals during Pokémon Go Fest. The event features the usual event things, like increased spawns, new Shiny Pokémon, and research tasks. Our Pokémon Go guide will list out the Timed Research and rewards, potential event Field Research you can get, and list out the spawns.
The event runs from July 23 until Aug. 3, when it will be followed by part of the Ultra Unlock event, which will focus on space. Notably, these spawns make it a very good time to work on “Let’s Go, Meltan” Special Research Tasks, if you still have them.
Check out the Field Research, Timed Research, and special bonuses below.
